Giving to Trinity Christian School

Trinity Christian School of Montville, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, board-governed organization with an annual operating budget in excess of $1 million. While tuition dollars and fees cover most of our expenses, our commitment to an affordable education for families means that we look to the kindness of others to bridge that gap. Find out how you can help!

Ways to Give

Online Via Safe Save

National Christian Foundation

Car Donation

Cash Gifts

Simplicity makes this the most common type of charitable gift. Cash gifts have the tax advantage of reducing your taxable adjusted gross income. Make your check payable to "Trinity Christian School."

Securities

Gifts of securities such as stocks, mutual fund shares, or other appreciated assets can be a great tax-efficient method for making a gift to TCS. These may be given either by the transfer of the certificate of ownership or through account transfer with your broker. In either case, you avoid the tax on any capital gains and receive a deduction for the full fair market value of the securities.  In partnership with the National Christian Foundation it is now easier than ever. We are now able to handle donations of stock, mutual funds, restricted securities and other asset based giving at no cost.

Property Gifts

Gifts of property can be made to TCS if the property has been held for greater than one year. Deductions are normally equal to the fair market value of the donated property.

Matching Gifts

Double or even triple your gift's impact on TCS. More than 1,000 companies offer some level of corporate match for their employees' giving interests. Contact your company's personnel department to see if they have a matching program for 501(c)(3) organizations.

Life Insurance

For many people, life insurance provides an affordable way of giving significant gifts to one's charity when the charity is made the beneficiary of the policy.

Bequests

A will can formalize the intention and distribution of your assets upon your death. This legal document can identify TCS as a beneficiary for all or a part of your estate. Bequests should be done with the assistance of an attorney.

With any sizable gift, contact a tax consultant and or an attorney to make a fully informed gift.
